In response to the US's urgent need of a standardized automatic weapon towards the end of the first World War, John Browning introduced two types of automatic weapons to Congress for consideration; one of which was the single infantry operated, shoulder fired Browning Automatic Rifle also known as the BAR. The new select fire, air-cooled, long stroke piston operated weapon was so impressive that it was unanimously recommended for immediate adoption into service. Even though the weapon saw limited use in WWI due its late introduction, the battles it participated in were heavily impacted by the presence of this man portable light machine gun. Despite its low ammunition capacity, its mobility and ability to be operated by a single infantryman made it a force multiplier on the battlefield. The results were so impressive, other Allied nations requested for immediate adoption of the BAR. Throughout its service life, the BAR saw action in WW2, Korean War, and even into Vietnam before it was replaced by the M60 Machine Gun. During this time the weapon was used by various nations such as Belgium, Poland, and Sweden as well as being adopted by law enforcement for its awesome unrivaled firepower.

"While I do not own this rifle I have used it for a day and let me tell you, it's a beast of a gun. Now this gun is very much like the real steel down to the trades which are very nice. This gun is very accurate and the hop up is both easy to adjust and amazing. With .25s this will easily hit targets about 150-170ft away easily anything much farther and you may have to lob them a bit. The mags hold 190rds yes but they are very inexpensive coming in at about $20 which honestly isn't bad. Now with all these positive things there come negatives too. This gun is very heavy due to the metal parts being steel. The wood is polymer but feels nice. Now I get into the pros and cons.

Pros:
Amazing range and accuracy
Metal parts are metal
Amazing hop up and gear box
Suprisingly quiet
Has semi auto as well so if you wanna take it into CQB and lower the spring you can

Cons
Heavy (could be a pro)
With a 9.6 there are really bad feeding issues use a 8.4
Expensive

For the rifle your getting at the price it is it's well worth the money. A good more budget friendly option is the Matrix one that I plan on getting but definetly get this if you have the money

"Not happy at all.
1st of all: SECOND time out with my gun the front muzzle came off because the set screws holding it in place came loose from the weight of the bipod being on it and its impossible for me to get access and screw them back on once the muzzle is placed back on.

Second: i bought 2 extra mags with this gun NONE work, not even the one that came with the gun, the spring jams up and doesnt feed, im using a 9.6v (which i know can make it skip shots.... But every shot?...) i use controlled bursts or single shots.

Third: the bipod was complete and udder trash to begin with.

There are some pros however.
When my gun was in one piece its weight was very real and the gun fired accurately (whenever it would ACTUALLY fire)
You feel like a total bad*** with it.

"I have had this for 2 years and though I have had some problems(significant) but after taking it apart and putting it back together a bunch of times I have finally got it reliable.

Pros: it is a BAR, and a very good clone of the real one with similar weight and size
- rate of fire is appropriate for a support weapon
- adding a tight bore barrel that extends the full length of the outer barrel makes it a full auto sniper, remove bucking with new barrel or it will jam, bucking has no effect on accuracy (ghop, rhop) I have tried them all
- good upgrade platform, replace bearings, gears, motor, and mosfet after the internals ate theirselves. Super Kong mosfet is a god send as you can dial down the rate of fire to be realistic, or dial up and it will empty the magazine in 1 trigger pull. Leave cylinder as it is proprietary and I have not found a suitable replacement.
- after replacing all the internals minus the hop up it is reliable and accurate.
- excellent support from Echo1
- frame built like a tank, once you lock tite all screws it won't move


Cons:
- feed issues, feed issues, feed issues! I own 8 magazines and all have issues. If you spray silicone into the feed chute in the mag it helps, if you put your hand under the magazine it will help a bit too. It is a design issue, the magazines catches are 1/16 to low, gonna weld a tab and see if that helps, just not gotten around to it.
- you have to take apart the butt plate to access the battery, should be made like a Thompson with a catch
- fire select is wonky as another reviewer stated. I am still working on this one, I think it is the design again and the type of switch they use.
- the bolt cove, supposed to move with the charging handle, again bad design. Just take it out you will never get it to work beyond the first two cycles of the charging handle, it will snag the gear box and get stuck back. It has no effect on how it shoots, just for looks.

I know it seems like a lot of issues and mods to make it reliable. You have to understand I shot it weekly, 2000 rounds a day, probably more than most people would do. However, it is a unique weapon and everyone wants to see it, a way to separate from all the M4 drones😊
